Cottonwood Elementary Principal accepts students'challenge; Set to sleep on the school roof

(Casper, Wyo.) - Going up! That so what Cottonwood Elementary Principal Mr. Doner is doing this evening as a promise to his students. This school year Mr. Doner and the parent group of Cottonwood wanted to encourage more parent participation and volunteerism. In an effort to make this happen the school adopted “Power of an Hour” to encourage just one hour of volunteerism by parents/guardians of the students at Cottonwood. Mr. Doner set the bar high with a goal of 160 hours of parent/guardian participation and the school reached that goal with one class reaching 100% participation! Now as a challenge by the students, Mr. Doner is to sleep on the roof! He said goodbye to his students this afternoon following the "Power of an Hour" celebration, packed up his tent and took to the roof. Mr. Doner waived at students as they headed home and hollered, "See you in the morning!" #oilcity #news
